Location Tampa, FL

Source 3 source matrix: Soundboard (shnid 97511); AdamG's audience recording (new flat transfer); and Dan McDonald's audience recording (new flat transfer)
Transferred by Matrix by dusborne and Droncit

Notes

Matrix:
Source a= soundboard shnid 97511 (not pitch-corrected)
Source b= Dan McDonald audience flat transfer of cassette masters
Source c= Adam G audience flat transfer of cassette masters
Sources b & c transferred with Nakamichi BX-1 adapted for flat transfer; eq applied with Diamond Cut Forensics 8.

Notes: Notes: I have put the longer audience, tuning, announcements, portions as separate tracks so that those who want the full
show will have that, while those who want only the music can eliminate those portions. The single exception is the beginning of Weather Report Suite,
which is announced as "for all you rowdies out there." Occasionally, there is variation in the vocal location. This appears to be some sort of anomaly between what was
recorded through the 'soundboard' tape and what actually went through the speakers.

Audience/tuning material from source B (almost entirely)

Dusborne did all the synchronization work. Droncit is responsible for the overall mix and sound.
Designed to be played loud.

Thanks to Adam G for trusting me with the tapes and doing such a nice job on the recording.
Thanks to TDK for making tapes that can hold up well for 40 years.
Thanks to Craig of Diamond Cut for all the help with the theory and eq curves.
Thanks to my dad for the electronics tweaks. 87 and going strong!
Thanks to Dusborne (Dave Usborne) for all the synchronization work. Thanks to Mrs. Dusborne (Tina Usborne) for listening and offering opinions.
Thanks to Melinda B. (wherever you are) for help with the microphone/recorder and comments about Bob Weir's haircut.
